Table 1 Sample sizes for each type of experiment

From: Interspecific competition between entomopathogenic nematodes (Steinernema) is modified by their bacterial symbionts (Xenorhabdus)

Type of nematodes involved in competition Proportion of X. nematophila/X. innexi injected into the insect Number of insects used for the bacterial assessment Number of insects used to assess the proportion of males of each species Number of insects used to assess the proportion of females of each species Number of insects used to assess the reproductive rate of each species Total number of insects
